After setting the foundation of brotherhood in the spring semester, the George Mason colony hit the ground running in Fall ‘07. After our first rush week we had twelve committed Associate Members who formed the Alpha class. We held our first Founders' Day banquet in Fairfax, with family and friends coming from as far as California and New Hampshire to meet the members of our new fraternity. The same semester we received the award for the highest GPA of all IFC and Pan-Hellenic Greek organizations at George Mason. The colony also took part in various community service events, such as packing care boxes with USO for American troops serving overseas, which helped us log over 400 hours of community service. Socially, we held mixers with sororities and participated in other on-campus events. The Fall semester was an eye-opening learning experience for the colony, which helped us realize where we need to grow and also how the fraternity should be run.
The Spring ‘08 semester was a test of endurance for the colony. The colony celebrated the warm weather by holding our first-annual "Shootout for Jimmy V" Golf Tournament. Over thirty-six Delta Chi alumni, friends, brothers, and associates came out on a beautiful spring morning to play golf and raise money to fight cancer, and in the end our fraternity was able to raise $2,330 for the Jimmy V Foundation. It is our hope that in the future as a chapter we will be able to make the golf tournament a tradition in order to raise money for the Jimmy V Foundation and create an event for alumni in the Washington DC area.
The 2008-2009 school year will be forever remembered by the George Mason chapter. On April 18th, 2009 the colony revived its Chartering Proclamation at a Banquet with our International Officers and many alumni in attendance. The George Mason Chapter of the Delta Chi Fraternity will continue to build a tradition of success as a fraternity and to form a brotherhood which is unique in our Greek community.
